Portomarin to Palas de Rei – 27 km/16.3 miles


Que pasa! We met a lovely lady, 71 year old Mary from Silver City, New Mexico in the Albergue yesterday. She has been layed up for five days because of her knee, but will be able to continue tomorrow, some of it with bus and we should see her in Santiago again. Anyhow, we really loved talking with her. The majority of people on the trail now are the Spanish doing their yearly thing. Traffic has increased greatly and I can not imagine doing it in July and August from Sarria on to Santiago. Life in the Albergues is quite calm……no more naked people….he…he…he.

A cloudy, cool day today. It rained during the night, so everything was pretty wet. The vistas are now less exciting and we walk mostly next to the road.

Palas de Rei – pop. 4200 and once home to a kings palace has little left to remind of it’s colorful past.

Only three more walking days to Santiago…Yeah!

Beautiful woods

    • Not enough time, takes 3 more days of walking. Once in Santiago we’ll take the bus to Finesterre…have to be in Madrid on the 4th…flying out early on the 5th. I can live with just walking to Santiago 🙂
